Valeria Piccioni

Valeria studied Architecture at Politecnico di Milano and completed her Master of Science in Building Technology at Delft University of Technology in 2019. During her studies and in her thesis, she focused on performance-driven design and digital fabrication applied to the building envelope. In 2020 joined the Chair of Architecture and Building Systems at ITA as a PhD researcher within the NCCR dfab.

Work Topic

AM allows entirely rethinking not only shape and form but also the functional performance of facades which can be influenced by the levels of geometry, material, and computational process. In a collaborative effort, we research the foundations of future multi-performance facades using integrated computational design and manufacturing processes.
